What I have read of Addison Mizner is that he was completely inspired with Spanish architecture, including the Spanish Colonial in Guatemala where he lived with his family as a young man.
The Islamic Conquerors’ of Spain ( Moors )came from the shores of Northern Africa in 711; their reign lasted for almost 800 years. Alcazar is one of the best remaining examples of Mudejar architecture, a style under Christian rule in Spain but using Islamic architectural influence.
Individuals of different faiths lived peacfully and without judgment from the Muslims.
In the main square across from the sprawling cathedral sits Seville’s Christian ‘Alcazar Palace’.
* Mudejar means, literally, ‘those who stayed’.
